A renowned film critic returns to his small Ohio hometown for a high school reunion – and to make peace with his past. The town and most of his former classmates, including the school bully, have fallen on hard times, and the successful critic soon finds himself caught up in a culture clash of economics, sex and long-submerged resentment.

A winner of the Joseph Jefferson Award for best new script.

It should be a week full of wine, wit and relaxation. However Jill’s husband doesn’t show up at a lakeside vacation house and instead of a holiday, the happily married Mark & Shelly are offered an intimate view of their friend’s erratic behavior as she tries to cope. The lake is serene, but in the house old passions bubble to the surface in this ‘dramedy’ about the limits of friendship and marriage.

An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring Lindsay Crouse, Jill Eikenberry, Tim Halligan and Michael Tucker.
